Playback / Recording Markers
Recording Destination Marker
When the Action Recording tab is active, the code editor displays a Recording Destination Marker. The marker indicates the location where TestCafe inserts new action code.
Drag the marker to move it up or down.
Playback Location Marker
TestCafe Studio highlights the current line of code during test playback.
Paste Destination Marker
When the Selector Inspector tab is active, the code editor highlights a line of code in blue. When you press the paste button, TestCafe places the Selector of your choice on that line next to the caret.
Pause Location Marker
When you pause test recording, the code editor displays the “Test Recording Paused” message where the Recording Destination Marker would normally be.
When TestCafe Studio encounters an error during test playback, it displays the error message under the corresponding line of code.
